The event was led by the Sokasenbei Promotion Council, which wanted to promote rice crackers produced in the region north of Tokyo. Senbei are a variety of rice cracker found in Japan.

"There are currently more than 60 producers and retailers in Soka and Senbei are now famous to the extent that it can easily be said that Soka and Senbei are synonymous with each other," Soka's city website says.
